|Normally, you remove the dried out buds, but we experimented and left some on, to see the results.|
|So far, Sedum painted a brown-grey and left to dry.|
Day took over the tree making and did some experimenting with both the Noch products Bob brought as well as some the fine flock we had on hand. Some neat results.
In the mean time, Bob & I were on the layout - Bob doing some amazing trackwork, while I was carving pink insulation foam and getting some Ground Goop on the layout, to say I've got some scenery.
|Poor Bob getting an earful from me about how much I like Ground Goop.|
Lookin' good so far... a neat little treat, to change my pink and plywood Railroad into a scenicked little world. To celebrate, I ran a train for my Dad, who's 83 and has a challenge dealing with stairs, and made a big sacrifice going up and down stairs to see our handywork (Thanks much Dad!).
